  • Cinnamon-Thyme Poached Pears use thyme's minty-green flavor to accent the subtle sweetness of the maple, cinnamon and lemon zest sauce. Makes 4 servings
  • 4 lrg ripe hard pears(Bosc, Bartlett, D'Anjou)
  • 1 c. pear nectar
  • 1 c. water
  • 3/4 c. maple syrup
  • 2 x McCormick(r) Cinnamon Sticks, slightly crushed
  • 1 1/2 tsp McCormick(r) Thyme Leaves
  • 4 x strips lemon peel


  1. 1. Peel and core pears* from the bottom, leaving stems intact. Cut a thin slice off the bottom of each pear to provide a flat, even bottom. Set aside.
  2. 2. In a medium saucepan, add in remaining ingredients. Bring mix to a boil.
  3. Add in pears and arrange standing with stems pointing up. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, 20-30 min or possibly till pears are tender.
  4. 3. Remove pears from saucepan. Continue to cook liquid till reduced to 3/4 c., about 15 min. Serve pears drizzled with sauce.
  5. *Tip: Use a melon baller to core pears; push the smaller end of melon baller into the bottom of the pear, and turn it to bore a hole and scoop out the seeds and fibrous core. This will leave the stem intact.
